"Auto Scene Modes with manual flash"


US
          

Hello,

I just purchased a d5000. So far I love the camera. My wife and I are newbies in the world of photography. Today my wife is experimenting with the "Scene Modes" she is taking pictures of autumn trees. She put the camera in "autumn colors" mode and snapped some pictures then in straight "auto" mode.

The results are the "auto" mode used the flash and the colors are more brilliant. Can we manually turn on the flash for any of the "auto scene" settings or are the scene modes simply set and thats the way it is?

Also obviously it is possible to manually set the camera. In an effort to learn more can we see what the settings the "auto scene" modes use by default so we can replicate them in manual mode giving us more control and a better understanding how the settings interact to give us desired results?

Thanks a million for any information

Hi JP,

Try deploying the built in Speedlight and see what happens.

If you want to see all of the settings including the picture controls you will have to view the image on a computer and check the Exif data using Nikon NX or other image editing software.
The camera should display the Shutter Speed, Aperture, and ISO, in the viewfinder display which will change for each situation based on the ambient lighting conditions.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Ahhh... I never thought of that. Let me get this right...The resulting picture will have the information (ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture) in the information of the picture itself? That is very handy indeed.

I can then use that info to help learn the differences in affect from those attributes... Thank you very much for the response, I will also look up the Speedlight functionality.

PS. My wife is getting sooo much enjoyment from her Nikon, she has been bitten by the photography bug!

Thanks again.
